Computer Engineering

Computer engineering is a discipline that combines elements of both hardware and software. Computer engineers have additional training in the areas of software design and hardware/software integration. Computer engineers are involved on all aspects of computing, from the design of individual personal computers and supercomputers, to the integration of computer systems into other kinds of systems (i.e., a motor vehicle has many subsystems that are computer- and digitally-oriented). Common computer engineering tasks include writing embedded software for real-time microcontrollers, designing chips, working with analog sensors, designing mixed signal circuit boards, and designing operating systems. Computer engineers are also well-suited for research in the field of robotics, which relies on using computers together with other electrical systems.

This program is accepted by the University of Toledo for the first portion of a bachelor of science degree. Students interested in pursuing a 2+2 or 2+3 bachelor of science degree should consult their academic advisor prior to initial enrollment in the courses.
